I'm inspired by who you can be without apology and I want to help you let your real self shine. I've been a life coach for 10 years. I've always been a seeker trying to discover a way of being in life that feels soulful, authentic and aligned to what my heart wants not what my head thinks I should have, be or do. I spent 20+ year career in HR, OD, talent management and executive coaching. My kids were my biggest wake up. I saw the way I was working wasn't working anymore. I couldn't keep pushing myself harder. I had to accept I couldn't attain this perfected version of myself that I had strived most of my life to achieve. I had to find love not from accolades and other people's acceptance but from deep inside me. That's when I learnt to connect to my heart, heal my childhood wounds and fears of never being enough and set light to my passion in a completely new way. I want one thing for my clients. Be real. Be themselves, fall madly in love with that person and honour their soul's calling.

Why do we disempower ourselves and others?

Empowerment is a hot topic. The idea that we can step into our brilliance and self empower is a sexy subject and something most of us will admit to wanting in our lives. Yet empowerment assumes that we understand how we disempower ourselves and in my experience that's the piece that often stays hidden in the shadows. I believe this means that we slap plasters on wounds instead of really healing the pieces that give us authentic empowerment.

Parenting wisdom from an elder

Do you sometimes feel like you're never going to get this juggling act of parenting, work and life right? Do you keep reading and gaining more information but get stuck in applying it? This post is about simple wisdom from a beautiful soul who cared enough to help me when I was struggling. It's the kind of wisdom that I feel needs passing on with loving kindness to all parents who spin plates and sometimes feel alone .

What if you're actually underwhelmed?

Naturally, I've been thinking about overwhelm this month. It's what many of us have been talking about here and I'll be honest I've had my own "overwhelm" going on. But I just had this thought. What if it's all made up?

Why are we addicted to doing?

For many of us we don't know we're in overwhelm until that moment where something happens that forces us to stop and take note. So why is it we just keep adding to our to do lists? The truth is we're getting something from it.

What to do when expectation falls short.

Picture the scene, you've spent the best part of a year thinking ahead to your long awaited summer holiday. You've been working out, planning what you'll do when you're there, loaded up your Kindle, had all the waxing, pedicures and everything else done and you're just so ready and up for it. You arrive at the hotel and feel like your heart sink. Seriously? Is this it? It's nothing like the photos.

How do you set your life up?

It's easy to go through the motions of your life. One day feels much like another and suddenly you notice you feel like Shirley Valentine talking to the wall or the meteorologist in Groundhog Day who's stuck on repeat. Where do you start when you want to somehow begin again?
